how to use Internet Explorer 11 64 bits rather than the 32 bit version, on Windows 7 familial premium 64 bit

    Question

  • Hi,

    my system : up to date computer, W7 familial premium (64 bit), Internet Explorer 11 (32 bit)

    I use this computer on the web to visit just one website, always the same and several hours a day ; this site advocate the use of Internet Explorer 64 bits for more efficiency.

    How can I get to install, or switch to the 64 bit version of Internet Explorer, as presently when I try to install a downloaded version, I get as an answer something like "installation not possible because the more up to date version of Internet Explorer is already installed on your computer". Thanks

  • Hi,

    On a 64-bit version of Windows, please click system drive, there should be a “Program Files” and “program Files x86”,  the "Program Files" folder is for 64-bit programs and the "Program Files (x86)" folder is for 32-bit programs, you will find IE11 64 bit has already installed in you system in “Program Files”>”Internet explorer”.
